Should You Give Cats Milk?

"Hi brain steph learn bugaboo. I'm here with a classic episode from archives the temptation to give pets. Human food can be strong. Sometimes is a treat. It's harmless but some people food is best kept for people which brings us to our question of the day. Should you actually give cats milk. Hey brains stuff lauren. Vogel bomb here from children's books to tv commercials. The idea that cats are wild about milk is everywhere yet. What pop culture feels to show is what happens shortly after that. Bowl of milk is empty. The cute kitty peacefully laughing away at a bowl of fresh milk is likely to spend the next few hours suffering from diarrhea gas bloating and other unpleasant side effects cats like most adult mammals including many humans are lactose intolerant. That means they lack the enzymes needed to break down lactose. The sugars found in milk. A bowl of milk isn't likely to be deadly but the after effects are likely to treble both the cat and the owner who has to clean up the mess if your cat seems to tolerate milk to an extent or if you simply want to offer your cats something special consider milk like any other treat since milk has little nutritional value to the cat. It's no substitute for proper cat. Food and should be served to the cat with the same care that you would any other human foods or commercial cat treats that means making sure that milk and other treats make up only ten to fifteen percent of a cat's diet to avoid potential weight problems and the health troubles that come with them. Consider limiting milk to no more than twenty to thirty calories per day. that's no more than a few spoonfuls. Consider lactose free milk or goat's milk to reduce digestive problems.

Why Would the Creator of Graham Crackers Be Horrified by Them Today?

"Harebrained steph. Lauren vogel bomb. Let's face it. One of the best things about making a campfire is making s'mores. The quintessentially american treat consisting of a toasted gooey marshmallow and a square of melted chocolate pressed between two crisp graham crackers. But have you ever wondered where graham crackers came from or where they got their name. The original graham cracker was a health food developed in the eighteen thirties. From the teachings of an american food reformer and religious teacher named sylvester. Graham who by all accounts would be appalled by what's called a graham cracker today which is typically made with refined flour high fructose corn syrup ended up dab of honey for marketing purposes instead graham's original cracker called for just wheat and gram flour a form of whole wheat flour made by grinding the endo sperm winter wheat into a fine powder and mixing it with the brand and wheat jerem it has of course texture and nutty flavor the resulting cracker contained no sugar fat and often had to be softened by soaking or boiling before eating. We spoke with new york-based food historian. Sarah weisberg johnson. She said it's funny. That of all the things that he talks about with his health reform. That's the one thing that gets widely adopted and has his name. Graham flour gets adopted by people who may not even be aware of him even towards the end of the nineteenth century and persists into some of the twentieth century. You hear about graham gems and gram bread. Cookbooks up to the nineteen forties and fifties graham. Who was not a doctor. Although he sometimes went by dr graham was horrified by the over processing and enriching of wheat flour and believed that the loss of fiber and other nutrients and white flour ruined consumer health in eighteen.

Experience. She made them individually, not I'm not not crammed in a pan together, so they're a little bit little bit wider and flatter than the kind of like rise up sort of sort of cinnamon rolls that that I've seen in other places, but Yeah. Having grown up with those I am a Incredible snob about the packaged the canned, huh? Explosive ones and how they're not real cinnamon rolls and those air closer to biscuit dough, and I don't approve because they should be G sti and delicious. Oh, but, you know, but but everyone everyone likes what they like. And I'm excited whenever anyone is eating anything, basically. So, so perhaps I've never had a cinnamon roll. In your estimation. Perhaps not. You have had that one bite of a Cinnabon, which I would qualify as a cinnamon roll. Yeah. I don't remember it. But something recently E was a retired I was in the airport.

You got to take advantage of it, sunshine. I mean, you see running down the sidelines out because you know it was something exciting to see all the work he's put in.

Why Are Leaf Blowers So Annoying?

"Hey brain stuff lauren Vogel Bob here the sounds of autumn satisfying crunch the crisp apple or fallen leaves to your feet or the teeth grinding noise of a leaf blower. Powered by electric or gasoline motors that propel air out of a nozzle to send leaves and grass cuttings flying leaf blowers are probably the most Vilnai's devices in the lawn care universe to the noise that they have met in the mid nineteen seventies when leaf blowers became ubiquitous in the United States to California cities adopted early bands of the Equipment Carmel by the sea beverly labeled the leaf. Blowers a noise nuisance and banned their use a move that has been followed by hundreds of other cities across the United States to some degree. But what is it about leaf blowers that people hate is that the decibels the constancy delete blowers pose real dangers to the health of users or others who happen to be within earshot increasingly, the answer appears to be yes to all of the above. Leaf blowers may send leaves and lawn clippings for a ride, but the gusts which reach one, hundred, eighty, two, two, hundred, and eighty miles per hour. That's about two, hundred, ninety, two, four, hundred, fifty kilometers per hour also create a nose clogging swirl of fungus spores, herbicides, and microbes. The resulting dust is so aggravating to people with allergies, asthma bronchitis, and other respiratory maladies that the American Lung Association recommend staying away from leaf blowers altogether. And then there's the air pollution operating a commercial leaf blower for one hour and it's as much smog forming pollution as you would if you drove a recent mid-size car as say twenty sixteen Toyota Camry from Los Angeles Denver, which is about a one, thousand, one, hundred mile or a one, thousand, eight, hundred kilometer trip. That's because most leaf blowers used to cycle engines they're lightweight and inexpensive, but they require a mixture of gasoline and oil to run unlike more complex engines. They don't have separate chambers for fueling lubricants when operated the engine wastes approximately one third of the combined mixture releasing carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, and hydrocarbons into the air. Three toxins are some of the main culprits in the air pollution from leaf blowers. Carbon monoxide helps for smug nitrous oxide is a prime ingredient in acid rain and has been linked to global warming. Hydrocarbons are cancer causing organic compounds that also contribute to smog formation plus leaf blowers are noisy. How noisy are they when you engage in conversation? That's a noise level of about. Sixty decibels according to the center for hearing and Communication. If you're strolling on a sidewalk in a car goes by that's about seventy decibels a leaf blower, even fifty feet or fifteen meters away can be up to seventy five decibels and right up close that jumps well into the nineties according to the World Health Organization any noise about seventy decibels risks causing physical hearing damage. And then there's the mental toll. Miss. A phony is a relatively newly classified condition in which people are angered by particular sounds like chewing or knuckle cracking although leaf blowers aren't mentioned in the diagnosis parameters it stands to reason this phony may be related to people's dislike the machines because they're extra sensitive to sound. Preliminary data shows that phones brains may have a hypersensitive connection between the auditory system and the LIMBIC system, which is the part of the brain that's responsible for creating emotions. It's so much a part of life for a phones that they can be shocked others don't feel or react the same way to certain noises. But being irritated by leaf blowers doesn't necessarily mean your phone. Erica. Walker a doctoral student at Harvard. University's Chan. School. Of Public Health discovered that is far less irritating to create a sound than it is to hear it in a survey of one thousand, fifty residents more than a dozen Boston neighborhoods, Walker found that the majority of respondents said they couldn't control or get away from noises like leaf blowers and they believed that no one really cared that it annoyed them. What's more other research has shown that leaf blowers, a low frequency noise that penetrates through outer walls into homes and businesses in a way that some other noises passing vehicles, for example do not. However. Leaf blowers have become an integral part of commercial lawn care while a leaf blower may sound like fingernails across chalkboard to you for the businesses that rely on them portion of their livelihood. It's probably music to the ears.

The Now-extinct Castoroides Was a Bear-sized Beaver

"Brain stuff Lauren Vogel. Bam here. mammoths, mastodons and Sabertooth hats weren't the only giants roaming ancient America. The Pleistocene was a global epoch kicked off two point six, million years ago. It lasted right up. Until Earth's most recent ice age ended about eleven thousand, seven, hundred years before the present day. When you live in a cold environment, being big has its advantages. Large animals tend to conserve body heat more easily than smaller ones. This is one of the major reasons why colossal mammals were so widespread during the frigid pleistocene. CASTA Roy was very much a product of its time. The largest rodent in Pleistocene north. America, this very big beaver grew to more than seven feet long from tail to stout that's over two meters and could have weighed as much as two hundred and twenty pounds or a hundred kilos or more. Rivaling the American black bear in size casta royalties utterly dwarfed the Beavers that lived today modern Eurasian, and American beaver species clock in just around three feet long a bit less than a meter and way somewhere between twenty nine, seventy, seven pounds. That's about thirteen to thirty five kilos. Proportionately castaways had a narrower tail and shorter legs albeit with bigger hind feet than its extant relatives. We also know that it didn't eat the same foods. What he plans are a crucial part of every living beavers diet. The critters use chisel like incisors that's their front teeth to gnaw through bark and take down trees. But. Even though castaways incisors grew to be a whopping six inches or fifteen centimeters long the teeth had dollar edges by comparison. Dental differences would have made it a lot harder for Castro to eat tree bark and indeed it looks like this was not really on their menu. Using isotopic signatures and castaways teeth from Ohio and the Yukon a twenty nineteen study found that the giant beaver mostly eight softer aquatic plants. The findings say a lot about the Rodin's ecological niche and why it might have died out. For starters, castaways probably didn't build dams. Unusual. About that the earliest known beavers appeared during the easing. A which lasted between about fifty, six, thirty, four, million years ago. New evidence suggests that the wood harvesting specialists came along much later perhaps around twenty million years ago. In all likelihood, these bark fanciers used would as a food source before any of them started constructing dams. Since as fed on aquatic plants, its survival would have depended on wetland habitats. The animal was highly successful for a time cast Roy these fossils representing at least two distinct species have been documented in the Great Plains the Great Lakes, the American South Alaska and numerous Canadian provinces. Unfortunately for the mega sized beaver north. America. became warmer and drier after the last ice age ended wetlands grew scarcer as a result. Today's beavers used their logging skills to reshape the land around them so that it meets their needs with some well placed would in the nearest stream, a determined beaver engineer brand-new Pons. Yet if Castro Reuters didn't harvest would or build dams, it couldn't followed suit. So theoretically decline in natural wetlands left the giant beaver more susceptible to extinction. Last of these creatures perished around ten thousand years ago.

Why Is 'Mayday' the International Distress Call?

"Stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here. Mayday is an international distress. Call used by airplane, pilots, captains, and some emergency response personnel, the US coastguard deals with roughly twenty five thousand distress calls every year, some of which involved the mayday code. The signal arose just after world, war one as air traffic between Britain and mainland. Europe increased dramatically. All nearby nations needed an internationally understood signal that would alert authorities urgent aircraft problems. So, why not just use the standard? SOS call that Navy captains used when they were in trouble. Well ships communicated through Telegraph, Using Morse Code, and this technology made SOS of three dots, three dashes and three dots unmistakable by contrast aircraft pilots used radio calls and SOS, owing to its continents could be misheard as other letters like F. One Frederick. Stanley Mockingbird, a senior officer in London was put in charge of finding an appropriate code word. He reasons that because so much of the air traffic flew between Croydon. England and Paris France. It might make sense to use a derivative of a French word. He came up with mayday based on the French pronunciation of maybe or help me, which itself is a distilled version of eighty or come help me. The US formally adopted mayday a distress signal in nineteen, twenty seven. Due to radio, interference and loud ambient noise, a pilot's told repeat the word three times when they used the call. This repetition also serves to distinguish the transmission from others that simply refer to the mayday call. Although any situation in which it's being used as probably a little panic filled the federal aviation administration encourages pilots to offer specific information in a specific order, so that emergency responders exactly what they're dealing with. I told repeat. The word made a three times then the station address the aircraft call sign type the kind of emergency, the weather, the pilot's intentions, the current position, and heading the altitude, the fuel, remaining in minutes, the number of people on board, and finally any other pertinent details.

Why Does the Hellbender Salamander Need Our Help?

"Lauren Vogel here. A remote freshwater streams somewhere in the eastern United States the waters cool. There's a reasonably fast current, and the bottom is littered with big flat. Rocks sounds peaceful, doesn't it? What you're imagining is a perfect environment for trout, and for something else to every so often anglers who cast their lines in such places wind up catching North America's biggest salamander. This thing leaves an impression specimens measuring twenty nine inches long. That's seventy three centimeters have been documented and the beefy EST adults way forty five pounds. That's about two to two and a half kilos. These four legged amphibians have compressed heads and torsos, meaning that judging by outward appearance. It thinks someone had squished these critters flat with a rolling pin. Another key attribute is there brown to Greyish skin which hangs noticeably loose around their flanks. Early settlers didn't know what to make of. These guys baffled by their appearance. Some folks began calling them that offers devil dogs or mud devils. The species would receive. Scientific name crypto branches allegany intil eighteen. Oh! But nowadays most people know this strange salamander. The Hell Bender. Hell benders are divided into two sub species northern Arkansas and southern Missouri are the home of the endangered ozark. Hell Bender the eastern hell. Bender has a broader distribution having spread itself across the Great Appalachian region and parts of the Midwest. Though sadly, it also got conservationists worried. Some Amphibians are equally at home on land and in the water, but hell benders are more or less totally aquatic. Their skin absorbs oxygen, pulling it straight out of the water that leaves Hell Benders at the mercy of pollutants and excess silt runoff dumped into their streams by forest. Clearing projects sure doesn't help. One report published in two thousand seven by the US. Fish and Wildlife Service estimated that the ozark hell bender will become functionally extinct by the year twenty, twenty six in less protective measures are taken. As Twenty nineteen. It was still classified as endangered by the US fish and Wildlife Service which said that in some good news, most populations of the hell bender. Endanger of extinction and therefore do not warrant listing under the endangered species, act. To help boost populations of the ozark hell bender. The Saint Louis Zoo teamed up with the Missouri Department of Conservation and established a successful breeding program in twenty eleven. And just last year Pennsylvania reading awareness about this wonderful species by naming the eastern Hell Bender it's official State Amphibian. Maybe such efforts will improve the Salamanders PR. There's a pervasive belief that the hell bender has venomous bite, but this is untrue. The Hell Bender wheeled no venom and spite rumors to the contrary. The Infineon's do not hurt game fish populations. crawfish make up over ninety percent of the hell. Benders Diet, other potential prey items include tadpoles, smaller, Salamanders and small fish.

Hey because it's interesting but be because we are fans of horror and we wanted to demonstrate the episode on Youtube by dumping a bucket of fake blood over my head. Carrie style. If you happen to look it up. I apologize in advance for what counted as my acting ability at the time but the subject remains fascinating. Our blood is always read even in our veins when it looks blue. Here's why a brain stuff it's Christian Sagar. Do you remember in the movie carry where they dumped pig blood on that girl at her prom while the annals of human biology actually published an article in two thousand and twelve showing that humans are excellent detectors of pig blood but we are far less developed at detecting human blood. They concluded that human blood has no specific smell or appearance. That triggers immediate recognition. So blood is always read right. But why does it have to be read contrary to popular belief? It's not blue when it's in our bodies even when it's Deok's oxygenated but oxygen is part of the color. Along with the protein molecule haemoglobin the detaches to oxygen it carries from the lungs to muscles as blood gets pumped through the human body and while blood is always red shade depends on how much oxygen carrying for instance. When you cut a person's arteries open they bleed. This really bright red blood because of the complex formed between Hemoglobin Iron and lots of oxygen. But if you look deeper into the circulatory system and peered into vein that was delivering all of its oxygen. You would see that. The blood is a deeper Maroon. Color so veins they look blue or green mainly because of skin and skin. Pigmentation plays a big role. Since everyone's skin is a different color. Our veins look different. Especially because the tissue above our veins scatters red light. But let's blue light right on through. Even the Veins Reddish Brown. They appear to be blue from the outside. So is the way human beings perceived color another factor here as well yes. Researchers have shown that it

Why Was the Mad Hatter Mad?

"To brainstorm a production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff lauren. Vogel bomb here. If you've read Lewis Carroll's Alice's adventures in Wonderland or seen the movie adaptations the character of the mad. Hatter is bound to have left an impression. He's eccentric to say the least as presides over a rollicking tea party that Alice attends but the idea of being mad as a hatter will in the British sense mad meaning crazy not angry. It didn't come from Carol and if you like. Alice have a tendency to fall down. Rabbit holes this phrase is an interesting one. Carroll's book was published in eighteen sixty five but the Oxford English dictionary puts the earliest known use of mad as a hatter in eighteen twenty nine. That's three and a half decades before any march hare's or dorm. I sipped tea or the Cheshire. Cat made his famous claim of the General Madness of the inhabitants of wonderland. Where all mad here? The actual origin of the phrase mad as a hatter is unknown but it's believed to be connected to mercury poisoning in hat makers several years after Allah's had her first appeared in eighteen. Eighty three the phrase hatters shakes was used to describe the condition caused by mercury poisoning. The symptoms include muscle tremors and mental and behavioral changes. Wonderland's hatter behaves strangely in the novel as do most of the characters but his friend seemed to accept his oddities as being normal today. Mercury poisoning is known to the medical and scientific communities as Eric Ism. The modern list of symptoms include irritability and mania both of which the hatter displays. But there's also sleep disturbances. Depression disturbance hearing loss and those telltale tremors at least the bladder of which the hatter does not seem to have though to be fair. He only appears briefly. You may be glad to learn that. Although short term exposure to Mercury Ken 'cause Earth Ism. It usually goes away if you can avoid further contact with mercury long-term exposure such as that that dental professionals and chemical workers experience can mean the symptoms persist in any case. Eric ISM is a rare disease after the tea party. During the playing card court trial to determine who has stolen the tarts the hatter explains the king that he has no have his own because he sells all of the hats he has which brings us to the last stop in our rabbit hole. A what does mercury have to do with hats? It was part of a process called carrying in order to make felt which is what many hats are made of. You have to get the for of a beaver or rabbit to stick together in a Matt. Thick stiff fabric. A which means you have to get the for off of the skin to get the for off the skin. Cleanly mercuric nitrate was used. It came to be known as caring because the solution would turn the edges of the pelts orange as it dried modern haberdasher use hydrogen peroxide to remove the from the skin which is a slower but much safer process but apparently lose. Carol didn't mean to slander hatters via his tea party.

Why Are Fruit Flies Science Superstars?

"We'll come to brainstorm production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff lauren. Vogel bomb here. If you've ever swatted fruit flies hovering over the fruit bowl on your kitchen counter and wondered what purpose they could ever possibly serve humanity. You're not alone. They are small. Today are annoying but humans owe them a huge debt of gratitude for their contributions. The science modern genetics one species in particular. Drosophila melanogaster is a superstar of tiny annoying things at least five Nobel. Prizes have been awarded to scientists for their work on fruit flies. Yes the lowly fruit fly and the larger glorious urge human have together tackle genetics and done a lot of cool stuff but like why fruit flies. And how do you keep them out of your kitchen? And do we need to blame scientists for them? Being in your kitchen to begin with a fruit flies have been used in biological studies for a long time which means there are a lot of tools and resources for scientists using Drosophila melanogaster to ask interesting questions. But there are some specific reasons. The species has always been a darling of geneticists for starters in genetics. It's helpful to have research subjects that can cycle through generations rather quickly and fruit. Flies are great at that. We spoke by email Thomas Merritt PhD professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Laurentian University in Ontario Canada. He said fruit flies create a new generation about two weeks making breeding them in the lab. Simple there are also small and easy to rare and care for and it's easy to house as many of them as you need in a single lab at one time also. Fruit flies are surprisingly similar to humans and other vertebrates their Sophomore Molyneaux gaster has fourteen thousand genes and we humans have somewhere between twenty thousand and twenty five thousand and about eight thousand of those genes analogous similarly must fly. Biochemistry is the same or similar to ours. Merritt said fruit flies are great to work on if you're interested in variation between individuals or genetic lineages there are also a great system. If you're interested in experimentally altering the environment they are so small we can do things like keep thousands of flies at different temperatures to see how temperature changes metabolism or gene activity in one. Study IN MY LAB. We used a small conveyor belt to slowly turn the vials. We keep the flies in this. Simple instrument is essentially a fly treadmill. And we can get literally hundreds of flies exercising on a small desktop but fruit flies can be annoying in a lab just as they can in your kitchen to begin with their small and it's very difficult to dissect a fruit fly in case you're wondering and although we share many of the same genes genetic networks were separated from them by hundreds of millions of years of evolution. So it's hard to make assumptions about ourselves based on what we find in these little insects because there are substantial biological differences between us. Merritt said there are certainly questions that are better asked and larger or evolutionary more closely related species like rats and mice a similarly. There are questions now. For example changes in genes through evolution. That are better asked and organisms. That are even smaller can be kept in even larger numbers and with even shorter life. Spans like bacteria or fungi but we can't blame scientists for the proliferation of fruit flies in the world. They would have been there regardless. Merritt explained Drosophila. Melanogaster is a cosmopolitan species. Meaning it's found essentially almost anywhere. We find humans. A fruit fly has pretty simple needs in order to prosper and multiply and those needs are usually met in our homes a moderate temperatures and a source of fresh produce. That's on the overripe side. This is why fruit flies live high on the hug and places like dumpsters compost tapes and Kitchens Merritt said a one interesting thing is we seem to see more flies inside in the early fall. I think that's from flies. That have been happily breeding and multiplying outside all summer. Moving into the warmer inside spaces as the weather cools. The good news is the fruit.

In general have you ever seen among us. There are twenty nine species of them and not all of them. Look the same but they are all long bodied short eared. SORTA weasley looking animals. They they aren't very closely related to weasels. Though if you're an animal in the order Carnivora which is the order of mammals are mostly carnivorous and have teeth adapted for flesh-eating you can either be on team dog or team cat. Weasels are related to dogs. And however much mongooses look like weasels they. We are firmly on team cat fact. A mere cat is a type of Mongoose and cat is right there in its name. Mungo says live in colonies and most species. He's live in Africa. Although one species the job and Mongoose has been introduced to Europe and is also wreaked havoc and ecosystems all of the world especially on islands like Hawaii. Puerto Rico and Jamaica although mongooses are small. They're bright feisty and what scientists call non-discriminatory predators. That is if they can catch or kill it. They'll eat it up to and including venomous snakes and an animal like that can do a lot of damage on an island. But how can it be. That Skinny Mongoose can take on one of the most venomous snakes in the world. Like the Hulking King Cobra whose venom can kill an adult human.

Why Are Bananas Berries, but Strawberries Aren't?

"Welcome to brainstorm production of iheartradio Burgio. Hey brain stuff lauren. Vogel bomb here. There is an age old war of terminology in the culinary world that you're probably familiar with tomato fruit or vegetable. There's another lesser-known existential crisis in the kitchen. That demands attention to bananas. Are they berries this and if so what the heck are berries anyway. Botanically speaking these particular dilemmas may have never crossed your mind but once you start digging into the topic you might find you end up with more questions than you started out with for instance. What even is a fruit buttons consider fruit to be the parts of flowering implants that develops from the ovary and vegetable? That's a little trickier since. It's pretty much any part of the plan. That isn't considered a fruit or seed within the fruit family. You've got sub categories that include citrus stone fruits palms like apples and pears droops like peaches and apricots and pertinent torch discussion today berries. The differences between these subcategories comes down to which part of the plants flower ovary produces these skin flesh and seeds of the fruit in question. The technical definition of a berry is a fleshy fruit produced from a single very. If you're not too familiar with botany. The definition probably isn't helpful at all but once you learn that oranges and tomatoes fit that definition to a t and therefore could be considered berries. You start to the question reality go step further and find out that strawberries yes. Those delicious red fruits with Berry literally in the name aren't officially berries. Either either. Their accessory fruits meaning the flesh that surrounds the seeds doesn't actually come for the plants. Ovaries but from the ovaries receptacle didn't think would be talking so much about ovaries in this episode. Did you by the way raspberries aren't technically berries. Either it all goes to show that our language and especially the connective tissue between between our everyday language and our scientific language is highly flexible so scientifically speaking. What exactly is a berry? Well a berry has three layers of flesh the EXO carp or the outer skin the mess. Oh carp or the flesh in the middle and the endo carp which is the innermost part that holds the seeds and guess what has all those layers though yellow peeled white fleshed seed carrying banana. which by the way is the number one fruit choice in the United States according to the?

You might even want to regulate the amount of time that you spend dozing between excessive screen. Time longer working hours you might be desperate for a more natural and probably earlier bedtime but setting a sleep schedule is no small no matter how ever a study published in current biology shows that there might be a rather simple solution a weekend. Camping could be the path to an earlier bedtime and no. That's not because of exhaustion from constant grizzly vigilance. Although that can't hurt it's because we rely on electrical light at night and get get to little exposure to daylight so our circadian rhythms push for later bedtime. Our Circadian Rhythms Are Twenty Four Hour Cycle of behavioral responses to light and bark this and that controls our biological clocks. The researchers studied campers for a week in the winter and a weekend in the summer to test seasonal snow and environmental circadian changes during the winter.

Why Can We Hear Others' Footsteps, But Not Our Own?

"Welcome to the future of spaceflight experience. The journey live and stay tuned for the crude rude launch. Featuring Boeing's first commercial commander Chris Ferguson. Welcome to brain stuff. Production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff. Lauren Vogel bomb here. You're walking down a deserted street to all quiet in your thoughts and suddenly you hear footsteps. Of course your own footfalls were making noise too. So why is it so easy to ignore our own noises and so easy to hear others. Scientists scientists have long known that we're capable of tuning out our own personal noises but we're previously in the dark about how the brain accomplishes this feat. The results of a new study published in the Journal. Channel nature aims to amp up our understanding of this phenomenon by focusing on footsteps. We spoke with lead researcher. Dr David Schneider and Assistant Professor with the Center for Neuroscience at New York University. He explained we wanted to understand how the individual cells and our brains are neurons. Work together to make that happen. I've been to do that. We studied mouse brains and we built an augmented reality system. So that when mice ran we could experimentally. Control the sounds. They heard we. We could give them a couple of days with their walking making one sound then. We could unexpectedly switched the sound. The research was conducted at Duke University School of Medicine. The scientists soon discovered that when the mice expected they're walking to sound a particular way the neurons in the auditory cortex. One of the main hearing centers of the brain stopped responding into the noise. Schneider said it was almost like they were wearing special. Headphones could filter out the sound of their own movements in contrast when we played an unexpected sound neurons and their auditory cortex had large responses. The scientists soon realized that as the mice were becoming familiar with the sounds of their own. Walking there were some important. Connections being changed between the auditory cortex and the motor cortex. which is the part of the brain responsible for moving? Schneider said the connections and strengthen onto inhibitory neurons in the auditory cortex that are active. When the mouse heard the footsteps sound the end result was that every time the mouse walked a group of inhibitory inhibitory neurons were active to create a photo negative of the sound. The mouse expected which could cancel out the expected sound when it was heard. The experience isn't limited to footsteps. Either Schneider said the heavy breather rarely knows that they're heavy breather because it doesn't sound as loud to them and I think the same is true of key strokes folks assure I can hear my own keystroke when I'm typing but I don't usually get annoyed by them but if someone's sitting next to me was typing heavily. Drives me batty for any any creature. Accustomed to being hunted like mice. This ability to filter out one's own innocuous noises and focus on the more potentially dangerous ones is critical. This is also the same phenomenon at play when we sing. Speak or play music. Schneider explained we usually have an idea in our head for what sounded like to produce use when I sit down at piano and strike the keys for example. I know what music I want it to make. But when we're practicing we often get it wrong the mechanism that we've described in this paper. The ability to ignore the expected consequences of our movement gives us the extra cool ability to detect. When we've got it wrong so if I play the piano just right I hear it sure but my auditory cortex is pretty silent but when I play it wrong I get a much larger response as a result. The brain is able to interpret Britt that responses. Hey that didn't sound right. Maybe I should move my fingers a little different next time that allows us to learn from our mistakes though. The researchers are still trying to figure out what exactly how such errors signals are employed by the brain when learning language and music

Are Less Experienced People More Confident?

"He rain stuff lauren. Vogel Bam here with an episode from the archives for you back when our host one Christian Saker this is one. That's come up and I think all of our conversations and frustrations lately are less informed. Armed people more confident and if so why bring stuff. It's me Christian and Sager. If you're like most people you think you're very good at some things and are able to admit your less good at others. You probably think you're superbly-talented in one honor to areas and hey you may be right you try to be honest with yourself about your strong points and you're weak ones and you likely shake your head in pity at people you see as well. Oh stupid say things like. Why don't they understand that they're bad at doing stuff? Well there is an answer. But you're not gonna like it and this answer it doesn't just apply to people you think of as dumb it applies to everyone on earth including you and me. It's not a matter of intelligence necessarily a difficult fickle thing to measure but it is related to competence the ability to do something well in nineteen ninety nine psychologist named David Dunning and his Grad assistant didn't Justin Kruger tested. A group of students in several categories the ability to think logically to write grammatically and to spot. Funny Jokes folks. They also asked students to rate their skills in these categories. That is when they noticed something. Weird the people scoring below average on these tests were just incompetent in these categories. They also didn't know they were incompetent. And here's the kicker the less competent they were are the more competent. They ranked themselves. This is a phenomenon called illusory superiority this is a cognitive bias. Bias wherein people tend to rate their own abilities as above average multiple. Studies have proven this effect in everything from firearms to college. DEBATES AND MED students opinions of their interviewing skills. It doesn't seem to matter what specific skill were talking about. The less person knows about it the more likely they are to overestimate their knowledge. While dunning and Kruger popularized this effect in modern society. They weren't the first people to notice the relationship between confidence modesty. Honesty and skill philosophers throughout the ages have contemplated this idea like Bertrand Russell. Who famously wrote the trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure talk? Show in the intelligent are full of doubt. And here's another weird thing. People with actual competency are likely to actually underestimate their abilities. Researchers believe this modesty comes because competent people are more aware of how much they don't actually know as well as their field in general they also also consistently overestimate the performance ability of others. It all goes back to

BrainStuff Classics: Why Is Bacon Considered A Breakfast Food?

"Soap I'm Lauren Vogel bomb and I've got classic episode for You. From our erstwhile host Christian Sagar Bacon may have seen its peak internet fame. A couple of years ago but it still has a home on many humans. It's plates especially at breakfast. But this wasn't always the case here's why tapering stuff. It's me Christian. Sager her every day before I head into the studio I have a healthy hearty breakfast of eggs coffee and of course bacon. Well I'm vegetarian. So in my case it's Veggie Bacon. Who has their life together enough to eat breakfast every day anyways right? That's crazy talk but the point is this if you are in the United States than you already know that Bacon is one of the most popular breakfast foods in civilization right up there with eggs. But this wasn't always the case for much of American history. Breakfast would be something simple like a slice of buttered toast with coffee and orange juice and believe it or not. There's one man responsible for changing the way. America eats breakfast his his name Edward Bernez. I know I know you're probably wondering how could just one guy sway. The minds of millions wasn't bacon already around. Yeah sure Bacon Bacon or cured pork has been around in European cuisine for hundreds and hundreds of years. But it wasn't thought of as a breakfast food. So in nineteen twenty I five and out foot named the Beech Nut Packing Company hired Edward Burnett as to boost their bacon sales most ad guys at the time would have high tailed the to a pitch room brainstorming. Catchy slogans like making Bacon for example or that Bacon pancakes song from adventure time but Bernez didn't go straight for ADS. Instead he commissioned a study in a quote scientific poll Bernez had a physician asked five thousand doctors. The same loaded did. Question is a quote hearty breakfast better than a light breakfast to replace energy lost by the body at night because of the way the poll was phrased as most doctors agreed. That hearty breakfast was superior. Bernez reported these quote scientific results to other doctors across the United States. He also so embarked upon a broadcast and print campaign reporting these results along with advertisements for Bacon. This campaign exhibited some brilliant if not exactly ethical strategies I it used the appearance of objective scientific evidence. Second this evidence came from trusted sorority figures in third it sounded like nutritional advice rather than an ad whether you like Bacon or not. You can't argue with the results. beech-nut profits Sword and today Bacon is a major

Can We Win the War on Cockroaches?

"Hey brain stuff lauren. Vogel I'm here with great news. Cockroaches are quickly becoming resistant to several different insecticides. All at the same time. Cool cool cool one Michael SCHARF. A professor in the Department of Entomology at Purdue University along with his team found these pests are developing cross resistance to multiple classes of exterminators insecticides insecticides. The team's work was published in the June twenty nineteen issue of scientific reports. The problem is that each class of insecticides works differently to kill these his creditors so exterminators frequently mix them or switch them up to combat infestations. Cockroaches are resistant to multiple insecticides. Well you can see where this is going. Sheriff and his team used apartment buildings in Indiana and Illinois. That had infestations of German cockroaches as their experimental grounds I because it is very glamorous. They caught some of the roaches and tested them to see which insecticides had the lowest resistance on the roaches low resistance Austin spins the roaches would be more vulnerable to the treatments which scientists went onto us for six months. Sharf said in a press. Release if you have the ability to test just the roaches. I and picnic insecticide. That has low resistance that ups the odds but even then we had trouble controlling populations the researchers rotated -tated three different insecticides. That method kept the roach population stable over six months. Meaning it neither increased or decreased when they mixed to insecticides leads. The Roach population flourished according to the press release flourished being just about the last verb. Anyone wants to hear when talking about cockroaches when the the team used just one insecticide for the entire six months and the roaches had low resistance to that particular insecticide they were nearly wiped out. Well great right not really. Because of even ten percent of the roaches had resistance to that insecticide. The population would increase. Sharf said quote four to six fold in just one generation ration-. We didn't have a clue that something like that could happen this fast during this test. The Roach is also developed resistance to several other kinds of insecticides decides even if the new generations had never been exposed to them before so now what Scharff said he recommends combating roaches with more than chemical warfare including traps and vacuums quote. Some of these methods are more expensive than using only insecticides but if those insecticides aren't going to control or eliminate a population you're just throwing money away oh and hey you've probably heard that

What's in your wallet. Credit approval required capital one bank u._s._a. N._a. Look into brain stuff production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff. Lauren vogel bomb here. Let's say something has gone horribly wrong and you're in a physical fight with another human person. If that person punched you in the face what make you back off some might say that getting punched in the nose hurts like unreasonably so and that they would disengage others might argue that it would merely incite their ire after the initial shock kolin would kick in and then make even quicker work of their opponent when it comes to animal attacks the answer to whether a punch to the nose would stop an attack pretty much lies with what kind of animal you're considering punching and let's just make it clear right now that you should do all you can to avoid provoking animal attack and that if you're not being attacked punching any kind of animal is means for admittance into the special hell but that aside let's talk about a few different animals that have a reputation for needing a good stick in the nose and and whether that would actually help save your skin. The shark is the animal. Perhaps most commonly singled out for a defensive sucker punch. The rumor is that a good hard punch to the snout is going to send a shark reeling. There are a couple of problems with this. Though one is that it's super hard to punch anything underwater making dump on the nose pretty unrealistic another issue while shark noses are sensitive their gills and is are much more vulnerable punching one in the nose probably wouldn't do enough damage to stun it and you've got the added problem of needing to get a little too close for comfort to its enormous gaping jaws so perhaps no on punching sharks unless it's actively early and aggressively up in your face your best bet would generally be to swim away quickly and quietly as possible and keep in mind that we're not sharks preferred snacks. They usually approach humans out of curiosity rather than predation another suggested attacker for which a punch in the nose might work bears in many many cases. It's best to play dead around bear if they're just curious or if a mother is defending her cubs playing dead means they'll likely lose interest in you and amble on but it's also certainly appropriate to try to fight off aggressive bear and while it's not a sure thing punching more hitting bear is certainly going to help you fight it off so go go ahead in clocking in the knows if it's absolutely necessary of course the animal that's really going to be useful to punch is one that has a wildly sensitive snout so we present to you the animal it would be most useful to open the knows if it were attacking you. The star nosed mole with one hundred thousand sensory three neurons in its snout. It's extremely sensitive to touch however you'll almost certainly never need to defend yourself from one although they look like creatures out of a gemmell del toro film the star nosed mole is the size of a mouse and way more interested in eating worms than in bothering you today's episode written by kate kirschner and produced by tyler playing brain stuff is the production of iheartradio's how stuff works for more in this and lots of other sensitive topics visitor home planet housed networks dot com and from our podcast my heart radio doesn't iheartradio app apple podcasts or wherever you listen to your favorite shows money vertical of it and i'm jason jason pfeiffer editor in chief of entrepreneur magazine and what we know is this.

"You have to you have to apply to join, but basically to gain access all you have to do is. No the name of this podcast. The only question it's a pretty low bar be. You'd be surprised how many people apply? And either don't know that information or forget to input it. Well, I think this just an indication that there are a lot of scammers Facebook trying to join all groups to spam them with you know, worked for home and make twenty thousand dollars a week. But we nothing nothing of that. We don't have any of that kind of riffraff in our discussion module. It's just all listeners to the show posted about episodes and sharing stuff about squirrels. Yeah. Ever since our squirrel episodes. We have had a heck of a squirrel takeover on supplemental digital content there. I hope people aren't getting tired of it. They probably are probably are getting tired of squirrels. I don't know. I think there may be some new territories being uncovered I feel like there is a certain amount of repetition. But every now, and then just some new angle that I hadn't thought of we'll maybe we should mention a couple of emails, we got about squirrels, and and related interspecies current every let's do this one from Benjamin, wait, I think this is not quite squirrels. But this close Benjamin says, hey, guys, I let me say thank you for doing. What you do wouldn't be able to make my hundred twelve. Twenty mile round trip commute without you guys. That sounds rough. Benjamin writes, I just listened to the podcast about animals eating their own feces and loved it, even though I definitely considered skipping. It. I however after listening to the stuff you were saying about rabbits, I had to write in with isn't that squirrels rabbits eating? That's okay. Yeah. It's another animal episode that I think resonated with a lot of people and produced a number of field reports. Yes. So Benjamin writes, it reminded me of this time I was in college walking to class and so a bird dive bombing the ground out of the corner of my eye. Intrigued I walked over to get a closer look in. So that there was a rabbit on the ground being attacked by this bird. But the rabbit didn't seem to be phased in continued to go about its business. Reluctantly I get closer and closer. And I noticed the rabbit had a live baby bird on the ground in front of it. This is squirrel territory. It became clear. The rabbit was trying to eat this little bird after about twenty minutes of this airborne avian assault from what I assume was the mother of the rabbit finally hopped away when I walked over to the still alive baby bird. Need a closer look at what happened. It was to my horror that the rabbit had eaten the legs off of this little bird. Definitely blew my mind. Thought we had a classic case of Beniquilo on our hands though, you might be interested and was curious if this is common from Benjamin Beniquilo, by the way is a bunny. Dracula that is in some young adult or children's books herbivorous, though, I believe I I've never I haven't either. But I think the Niculae just sucks the sucks vegetables in somewhere. Sounds fun. I had not heard of it before. But our our colleague Lauren Vogel bomb as a benico shirt that she wears to work. Well, assuming the story is true. I don't know how to explain it. I do not know if carnivorous common in rabbits, I have never heard about that before. But then again, I hadn't heard about it and squirrels until we decided to dive into squirrel horror. So who knows by the way, minor squirrel slash Scud update from. A household. It has been decreed that the word. Scotty is. Okay. Like Scoggins puts kind of a fun twist on skunk. Oh, yeah. The Bonnie didn't like scub- because it sounded like you were insulting the, squirrel. Yeah. She said I can't quite put a finger on if it just it sounds demeaning to the to the squirrel. But then I would occasionally talk about going out to feed the Scotties. And and then that she said that sounds all right? So sticking with that Scottie. Okay. Yeah. I guess it does have that kind of sound. But as far as I know skulk has no negative connotations whatsoever. No, all right..
